26-05-2022

(WorldKings.org) The theatre was recently named as one the of the UK’s most fascinating theatres, and features in a book published this month called ‘Twenty theatres to see before you die’ by Amber Massie-Blomfield.

The Theatre of Small Convenience was a theatre in Malvern, Worcestershire, England. It is the world's smallest commercial theatre, seating up to 12 people.

The theatre was located in Edith Walk, Great Malvern. Local puppeteer Dennis Neale started work on the theatre in 1997, opening for the first show in November 1999. The theatre's name comes from the building's original purpose – it was converted from a derelict Victorian gentlemen's public convenience. It is trapezoidal in shape, 4.9 m long and from 1.8 m to 3.0 m wide.

 

The theatre used to regularly host puppetry, professional and amateur actors, drama, poetry, storytelling and opera, and became a regular venue of the Malvern Fringe Festival. In 2005 the theatre was chosen as one of the venues for an international puppetry festival.
